Panic-buying has seen supermarket shelves picked clean around the world of many staples like meat, pasta and soups. With lockdown being both a fear and reality for many nations, having healthy meals comprising of items with a long shelf life is essential. It may be tempting to reach for comfort food to find some solace during this stressful time, but opting for healthier food options will give you more energy and will help you to stay more productive if you are working from home like we are at Ronin.
We have put together a list of some of our favourite healthy meal ideas made with frozen veggies.
Plain rice, while filling, isn’t the most exciting or dietarily sustainable food choice. You can easily make fried rice with items that all have a long shelf life like soy sauce, vegetable oil and of course, frozen veggies! This recipe uses frozen peas as it’s veggie of choice, but feel free to get creative!
Curry is an easy dish to make that is kind to the budget and easily stored for long periods of time once it’s prepared. This recipe uses coconut for a fresh flavour to a meal made using frozen and canned items. Curries are an easy way to explore your culinary flair by experimenting with different levels of spice, vegetable varieties and more!
Veggie burgers are a great way to get your burger fix while leaning on the healthy side. This exciting recipe uses a mix of edamame, peas and carrots to make the patty. Thanks to the use of edamame in this recipe, the meal also has a high protein content. This meal would pair perfectly with some frozen sweet potato chips!
Now, we said no comfort food, but what is the harm in having a healthy version right? These cauliflower nuggets are a great way to up your veggie intake for the day as a snack or the main portion of your meal. Try this recipe with frozen cauliflower florets.
A classic frozen veggie meal, stir fry is a flavourful dish that you can get creative with. This recipe includes a simple base of frozen veggies and a classic sauce, perfect for adding a protein like tofu, chicken or beef.
We understand that this is a tough time for everyone and keeping your diet in check while not causing financial strain is one of the ways that you can mitigate unneeded stress. Buying items with a long shelf life is becoming increasingly difficult but important to ensure that you are prepared for a lockdown scenario. Choosing healthier options will not just assist in maintaining your physical health but also your mental health when we all come out the other side.
